If you’re planning a wedding in Nebraska, there are several things to take into consideration. Maybe you’re a Husker fan who wants to incorporate some of your love for the Cornhuskers into your wedding, or maybe you’d prefer to stay away from anything Husker related on your wedding day. We’ve researched the best months for Omaha weddings. Below we’ll give you a synopsis of each!
Best months for a Nebraska wedding
Nebraska is known for its hot and humid summers and frigid winters. Even if you’re having an indoor wedding during the winter, you have to be wary of snow storms. If you’re having a summer wedding, you need to watch out for thunderstorms and tornadoes. May, June and September are the best months to get married in Nebraska because they’re not too hot or too cold. Here’s why you should consider getting married in one of these three months in Nebraska!
May is naturally beautiful with spring blooms such as ranunculus, peonies, poppies and bluebells. If your color palette is light, soft and neutral, getting married in May will accentuate your colors. The weather in May in Nebraska ranges from 69 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. You can get the perfect mix of spring and summer with a nice, warm day and comfortable temperatures in the evening.
Just remember Cinco de Mayo falls on the 5th of May every year, and Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. Keep these dates in mind when planning your May wedding. If you’ve dreamt of getting married in the summer, but are wary of it being too hot, consider May for your wedding month!
June is one of the most popular months for weddings. You get an abundance of summer blooms like calla lilies, lisianthus, hydrangeas, peonies and roses. You can also expand your food options with fresh fruits and vegetables from the summer farmers markets. Temperatures in June range from 79 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. There is always the likelihood of unclear skies, but June tends to be sunny and warm.
Remember that Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June. You’ll want to keep this date in mind when wedding planning for June. June is a highly desired month for weddings, so be sure to book your venue and plan well in advance.
September is perfect if you like cooler weather and darker colors. You can incorporate oranges, deep purples, reds and greens into your wedding color palette. Fall blooms like marigolds, chrysanthemums, calla lilies and roses are all in season. You can incorporate the natural splendor that comes with the season of fall for your September weddings.
Temperatures range from 55 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember that the days get darker sooner, so plan your ceremony and reception accordingly. Labor day falls on the first Monday in September, and we remember 9/11 in September as well.
